Helping You Receive Full Benefits After An Injury At Sea
Working on ship, barge or other sea vessel can be very dangerous. Injuries from falls, equipment failures, fires and other hazards are all too common. Fortunately, the Jones Act provides relief for injured seamen. If you are an injured seaman, you may be entitled to maintenance and cure benefits.

What Are Maintenance And Cure Benefits?
The Jones Act provides maintenance and cure benefits for seamen who have been injured by the negligence of their employers or co-workers. If you work on a ship, barge, jacked-up (moveable) oil rig or other sea vessel, you may be entitled to maintenance and cure benefits. Maintenance is a daily benefit for living expenses, and cure is compensation for necessary medical expenses, including doctor visits, hospitalization, surgery, rehabilitation, therapy and other medical care. Speak with me at Manuel Gonzales, PC, to learn more about the types of compensation that are available to you. I am here to help.
